We’ve come to the final week of our year together, and in Anafim (“Branches” for 2nd-3rd grades) we’re spending it telling each other warm fuzzies and playing games that make us laugh. It’s been the weirdest year ever, but these tremendous children have shown up week after week ready to care for each other, be curious and creative, and wrestle with Jewish texts.
We’ll see each other again next year, but we’ll be different then! לְהִתְרָאוֹת (L’hitraot — See you later), Anafim! I’ve been lucky to grow with you this year, and I can’t wait to see you next year!
